JoJo Siwa defends calling Candace Cameron Bure the rudest celebrity she has met

JoJo Siwa defends calling Candace Cameron Bure the rudest celebrity she has met

The singer has come after the Fuller House star yet again

JoJo Siwa may be known for being bubbly and light, but when it comes to the topic of LGBTQ+ rights, she doesn't pull punches.

Who doesn't love a good celebrity feud?

Well, Jojo Siwa made headlines last year when she took part in a TikTok trend where she had to do some name dropping.

When she was asked to name the rudest celebrity she'd ever met, she flashed a picture of Candace Cameron Bure to the camera.


Bure is best known for her role on Full House which aired between 1987 and 1995.

She also returned for the sequel series Fuller House, which premiered on Netflix in 2016.

Even though it stirred up a lot of controversy at the time, Siwa has no regrets about 'calling out' the actress.

Siwa said: "I’m OK with calling her out the way I did. For a while, I regretted it. But, after I found out that article about her not wanting anything to do with LGBQTIA, that’s my people. I gotta stand up for my people."

This probably requires some context.

Initially, Siwa told Bure that the reason she'd branded her rude was due to a red carpet interaction from a few years ago.

Bure recalled: "I was shocked when I saw the TikTok on Sunday. She didn’t want to tell me [how I was rude to her].

"She said, 'You know, I met you at the Fuller House premiere and I was 11-years-old'.

The teen star then explained that she had asked the former The View co-host for a picture, but Bure allegedly replied, 'Not right now', and went on to pose for photos with other people.

While Siwa apparently told Bure that it's not a big deal anymore, Bure said she felt awful about it.

The 46-year-old said: "I broke your 11-year-old heart. Ugh. I feel crummy. JoJo, I’m so sorry."

Candace Cameron Bure has been criticised by JoJo Siwa in the past.

So, water under the bridge, right? Apparently not.

Siwa once again criticised Bure in November when the actress came under fire for comments she made that were deemed homophobic.

Whilst discussing her role with the channel Great American Family, Bure was asked if LGBTQ+ storylines would be featured in her new projects.

The actress, who is a devout Christian, was quoted as saying: "I think that Great American Family will keep traditional marriage at the core."

This didn't sit easy with Siwa and she took to social media to blast Bure.

She wrote: "Honestly, I can’t believe after everything that went down just a few months ago, that she would not only create a movie with [the] intention of excluding LGBTQIA. But then also talk about it in the press.

"This is rude and hurtful to a whole community of people."

Bure would go on to defend herself, insisting that her words were taken out of context.

In a statement provided to LADBible, she said: "I would like to address my comments on Great American Family’s programming as reported in The Wall Street Journal.

"All of you who know me, know beyond question that I have great love and affection for all people.

"It absolutely breaks my heart that anyone would ever think I intentionally would want to offend and hurt anyone.

"It saddens me that the media is often seeking to divide us, even around a subject as comforting and merry as Christmas movies.

"But, given the toxic climate in our culture right now, I shouldn’t be surprised. We need Christmas more than ever.

"I am a devoted Christian. Which means that I believe that every human being bears the image of God. Because of that, I am called to love all people, and I do. If you know me, you know that I am a person who loves fiercely and indiscriminately.

"My heart yearns to build bridges and bring people one step closer to God, to love others well, and to simply be a reflection of God’s huge love for all of us.

"To the members of the media responsible for using this opportunity to fan flames of conflict and hate, I have a simple message: I love you anyway.

"I had also expressed in my interview, which was not included, that people of all ethnicities and identities have and will continue to contribute to the network in great ways, both in front of and behind the camera, which I encourage and fully support."

This clarification doesn't seem to have convinced Siwa, who still remains critical of the mom-of-three.
